Unable to Connect to Network Folder
I am trying to connect to a folder on one machine using Vista from another
machine using Vista. The folder is a User Folder (C:\Users\<UserName>).

I have set this folder to share.

I have the following On:
- Network Discovery
- File Sharing
- Public Folder Sharing
- Printer Sharing
- Media Sharing

Password protected sharing is off
I also have OncCare and have set the firewall to allow file sharing.

I can access the printer on the computer, an external harddrive, Public
folder but cannot access the specific User folder I need. What am I missing?

RE: Unable to Connect to Network Folder
I figured it out. I forgot to add "Everyone" to the share when first sharing
the folder.

Now that I have the folder shared, I added my Music, Picture and Video
folder to Media Player of the remote computer and Media Player does not pick
up anything.
